NesterDS is a DS port of Nester. It emulates the NES/Famicom handheld game console.


Use the primitive ROM insertion tool included in the archive to put in the NES ROM of your choice.

Currently only one ROM at a time is supported.


Version 0.3

  • Vastly improved compatibility by fixing several mapper problems.
  • Got rid of alternate-line rendering.
  • Lots of speed-ups (better DTCM management, changed screen writes to occur during actual scanline routines, lots of other stuff).
  • Converted code-base to pure C, moved to devkitARM r19b.

Version 0.2

  • Sound. Sound processing is done almost entirely on the arm7 and so comes with no noticeable performance penalty, and the actual sound processing is still faithful to the original nester core.
  • General performance improvements, and decent code cleanup.
  • Scanline speed hack disabled by default, makes lots of games work that were broken before. Said hack is still available as a toggle option.
  • Reset option (X+start).
  • Hardware scaling to fit output to DS screen resolution.
  • All options are now listed and updated when changed on the sub screen.
  • Made auto-framerate option work better.
  • Other things too lazy to make notes of.
  • 50% more ninjas.

Version 0.1

  • First release.
